I decided to assess the kids' preference on what is enjoyable to read and learn about this week in reading group. I also wanted their feedback on how I could improve reading groups. I did this by creating a Google survey. This included multiple choice options, check boxes and open ended questions. The kids seemed to enjoy taking the survey and providing feedback. It was also very informative for me as well! They have come so far in their technology skills!

2H has been working in Bridges Unit 5 with a heavy focus on money. This includes coin identification, writing money symbols, and counting various quantities of money. The students have seemed to enjoy this unit and love working with play money. They are very resourceful! Try working with your kid at home to count money and discuss exchanges adults make every day using money.

On Tuesday, February 28th OQS 2nd and 5th graders welcomed Braeburn Siberians. We got to listen to an hour-long presentation that covered many dog sledding facts. After the presentation, we got to go outside for an hour and interact with the dogs. We even got to see a sled dog demonstration around the soccer field. This was a super enjoyable and unforgettable learning experience.

The 2nd graders worked very hard on decorating a shoebox to collect their Valentine's treats. We partnered with our 5th grade "buddy class". The 5th graders got to judge and award all of the boxes for their many different attributes. This was so fun!

OQS students got to ski and enjoy cookies and hot chocolate with their teachers on the last ski Friday of the school year. This was such a memorable experience for students and teachers alike! Throughout the ski school, students learned how to slow down, ski faster, and to have complete control of their body while doing a fun winter sport!
